Belphegor To Record New Full-Length Album

Blackened death metal act Belphegor will enter The Abyss Studios in Pärbly, Sweden on June 19th, to start recording the drum segments for an upcoming album. The band has tapped Peter Tägtgren to produce the as-yet-untitled album.

Belphegor's main man Helmuth said: "A new challenge. We're high on fire and totally motivated. I´m stoked to work together with a dude that needs no instruction, an excellent musician/producer. I´m sure that Peter will create a massive sound wall for our ninth long player. We are absolutely focused on the new album. That's the only reason why we play only a few open airs this summer. The master plan is to record again in 4/5 sessions til middle of September. Once again letting the tracks slowly take form, with the songwriting and production reaching a new level of intensity."

Peter Tägtgren also commented: "I am really looking forward to producing/mixing the new Belphegor album. It's going to be a blast, you better be prepared."

Bassist Serpenth adds: "On Friday we will start the fifth rehearsal session - day 24 - for the upcoming album, which lasts til Tuesday. We will fine tune eight compositions out of nine. It's going to be an epic - brachial Belphegor album, more shredding, more magick, more of everything."

The new album is currently expected to be released in early 2011 through Nuclear Blast Records. Additional details will be announced as they are made available.
